    If "Morning Glories" #23 had a theme, it would be faith. All the characters, especially The Truants, deal with each other variously in good faith, bad faith, broken faith and a shared faith in knowledge, power and destiny. The victims of the Ceremony also each had faith, though their beliefs and understanding differed. I'm looking forward to seeing more of how Spencer's themes of faith and destiny will tie into the long-running religious allusions in "Morning Glories," as well as the recurring, ominous phrases like of "For a Better Future."

    Morning Glories #23 is another excellent issue that propels this thought provoking, disturbing and intricately designed series forward. Recommended. Read Full Review

    Overall, I think this comic was well written with amazing art. I just had no idea what was going on because I have not read the previous comics. I do not suggest this to anyone looking to jump on to this series, but if you are a fan of the comic I could only imagine the excitement one would have reading Morning Glories #23. Read Full Review

    The biblical references continue as Akiko tells her liberator that the group should stop trying to target Abraham, but target his son instead. We also get a short scene with Ike and Jade finally making it out of the cave who, as the appearance of the military suggests, apparently have traveled back in time with Casey without realizing it. Confusing? Yeah, but still a good read. Worth a look. Read Full Review

    I do trust that when Spencer is finished, we'll look back on all this and it'll make perfect sense. But I wish I could be enjoying Morning Glories more right now instead of just mentally bookmarking each page for reference at some to-be-determined date. Read Full Review

    I thought this issue had way too much going on. Even though the cliffhanger keeps you interested. Nick Spencer needs to organize what clues he wants to give us in each issue. That way the readers feel like they are getting closer to answers to the main mystery instead of feeling like with every issue they are getting further away. This series would probably be better to collect in trade. I still like the series, but it is a series better to collect in trade than to read issue by issue. Read Full Review
